Rams Fall To Charlotte 58-50

Saturday, January 12, 2013

 

Playing what has become their trademark scrappy defense, the Rhody Rams appeared to be primed for a nice win Saturday in the A-10 home-opener against Charlotte.  However, a poor performance on the boards and a cold-shooting second half did the Rams in as they fell to the 49ers 58-50.

After shooting 52% from the field in the first half, Rhody took a 31-30 lead into the locker room.  But URI could just manage 27% (7-26) from the floor after tghe break.

Leading scorer Xavier Munford (8 points on 3-12 FG) was held in check thanks to foul trouble which prevented him from scoring in the first half.  The Rame were led by Mike Powell's 16 points.  Andre Malone had 13 points and 5 rebounds.

Charlotte was led by DeMario Mayfield's 17 points.  The 49ers dominated the glass out-rebounding the Rams 45-25.

Assistant coach Preston Murphy on WHJJ's postgame show, "this was all about effort.  Rebounding is about effort and we didn't do a good job on the boards tonight."

Those 45 rebounds helped Charlotte score 13 second chance points.

URI (5-10, 0-2 Atlantic Ten) has a week off before traveling to St. Louis next Saturday.
